20m. A well-protected excursion up the middle of the slab, starting from the cave / recess on the right. FRCC grade of HS (4b) is wrong.

Meant to do Serendipity but strayed left and probably did more of Red Slab. Nice grippy rock. Very cold weather.

Like a few of the routes for this crag. Graded wrong compared to FRCC grades. Clearly HS 4b.
Conan - 2nd - 09/Aug/11 with Clare A, Ian Bradley

A great route.

A splendid little pitch. Given the excellent gear throughout, it feels much more like a solid Severe than the FRCC's current grading of Hard Severe.
